Last weekend there was a really great ceramics fair in Piazza Santissima Annunziata, "Fiera della Ceramica" (the organizers website is under construction). Unfortunately, we didn't know about it until the day of, or we would have told you earlier! Friends of ours know the person who runs the event, and they invited us to it on Saturday. I spent several hours there with the kids, and they got their hands into some clay at a little workshop that was set up for children. Late Saturday night we had dinner with the artists at their hostel, and we went back Sunday and bought some great ceramics - bowls, mugs, an olive oil jar, and a couple of pitchers. Everything is hand made, and the ceramists are from all over Europe. I especially liked the work of Heiner Bauer of Babel Keramik (website in German and Italian), from Dresden Germany - some of which is shown in the photo above. The bowl in the foreground is now holding lemons in our apartment.
